This guide will show you how to build a survival tin, the Arduino way! 

Step 1 — Arduino Survival Tin 

• Be cautious when you work with Arduino boards as they are sensitive to static 
electrical discharge. 


Step 2 — Gather parts from shops or out of old junk. 

• I recommend Maplin and eBay.

Step 3 — Shortening leads. 

• If your USB cable needs to be 
shorter, fire up the soldering iron! 

Step 4 — Off -board components. 

• Components such as servos will 
require tinned wires to connect to 
the Arduino. Back to the soldering 

Step 5 — Pack it all up! 

• Get your tin and arrange the components in it. 

• You might want to include a battery snap and battery in the tin.
